Afghan Civilians More Valuable Than US Soldiers?

This report certainly makes one wonder.

Robert, this was a tiny little almost-a-question at the end of a long article. There may well be tragic incidents where it's appropriate to raise political questions, but this doesn't seem to be one of them.

@wally: It isn't the first post I have done on Afghan rules of engagement, Walt. I think it's a legitimate concern.

My comment was about the incident you linked to. If this were really about the rules of engagement, then the officers involved wouldn't have been punished, however weakly, for obeying those rules, would they? As I said, based on the information in the article, this doesn't seem to be en example in support of your concerns.
